James Taylor announces his next album, ‘American Standard,’ and details of his summer tour

The imagery is all part of a trailer for Taylor's newly-announced album, "American Standard", set to be released February 28. The coast-to-coast spring-into-summer run will give Taylor the chance to possibly debut new material from his forthcoming studio album, American Standard, which was also announced on Thursday and set to arrive on February 28th via Fantasy Records.

"I know most of these songs from the original cast recordings of the famous Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals", Taylor says in a release. The first song on the album, "Teach Me Tonight", has already been released, and is a reworked version of the jazz classic of the same name.

If a tour and a new album release weren't enough to keep him busy, Taylor will also release an audio-only memoir titled "Break Shot" on Audible on January 31. "In terms of how they were performed and recorded before, we paid attention to the chords and melody, but we were interested in doing something new; and in bringing something new to it, we've reinterpreted the songs, that's what makes it worth doing". Listen to the new single below!

The new batch of USA dates picks up following the completion of month's worth of shows performed across Canada beginning in mid-April with a performance at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, LA on May 15th. Taylor will stop in Boston on June 21 at Fenway Park for a performance featuring Brandi Carlile and Shawn Colvin.
